Empowering Communities, Restoring Hope

Every year, Hout Bay, South Africa experiences devastating fires that leave numerous residents with nothing but the clothes they are wearing.

At Thula Thula Hout Bay, we are more than just an organization. We are a community-driven movement dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of individuals and families affected by fires in Hout Bay. Our name, Thula Thula, inpsired by the lyrics of the Miriam Makeba song means “hush-hush” in Xhosa, while the Zulu meaning “peace and tranquility”, reflects our vision of bringing peace, compassion, and support to those in need.

Founded by a group of passionate residents who witnessed the devastating consequences of fires in our community, Thula Thula Hout Bay stands as a beacon of hope and resilience. We firmly believe that every individual deserves to be supported and uplifted during their darkest hours.

Our mission is clear: to proactively prepare for disaster relief, empower our community, and restore hope to those affected by fires. We are committed to creating a strong and united front, working alongside local government, residents, businesses, and retailers to maximize our impact and create lasting change.

At Thula Thula Hout Bay, we stand for:


We approach every situation with compassion and empathy, understanding the pain and challenges faced by fire-affected individuals and families. We provide a caring and supportive environment, treating everyone with the dignity they deserve.

Efficient Relief

Our commitment to centralized resource management ensures that aid reaches those who need it most, efficiently and fairly. By leveraging technology and effective communication, we streamline our relief efforts, providing timely support to fire victims.

Transparency & Accountability

In collecting and distribution of resources we uphold the highest standards of accountability. Our donors and supporters can trust that their contributions are making a tangible difference in the lives of those we serve.

A reality of living in an informal housing area is the ever present threat of fire.  A number of times a each year fires ravage the informal housing areas of Hout Bay, leaving many residents with little more than the clothes on their back.

Thula Thula Hout Bay was started by a small group of Hout Bay residents, who realised the need to be more prepared to offer support when this inevitable tragedy strikes.
